Travel to Bolivia

Earlier today, Mid-South Synergy sent a group of 5 to the Department of Pando, Bolivia for an electrification project in rural villages in this region. We are extremely proud of our men who volunteered to to lead this project, partnering with 5 other electric cooperatives from Texas. All together, the Bolivia team is made up of 16 linemen who are all extremely excited to bring power to hundreds of locals for the very first time!

Upon arrival in the city of Cobija, we were met by local press and the secretary to the Governor of Pando. Mid-South’s Bo Williams spoke with the press and greeted everyone on behalf of Texas. Everyone was very excited to greet us and thank us for coming to help their rural communities.

Once everyone loaded up all of our gear, we boarded our two buses and made the 3 hour journey down a dirt road through the jungle to Puerto Rico, Bolivia, where we will be staying during our time here.
